My boyfriend and I are looking into the possibility of having a 7 day holiday to France in mid August.
We live in Bournemouth so are looking to get the cheap ferry over to Cherbourg with our own car and drive down to the area surrounding La Rochelle. We have been told there are some good surf spots and nice beaches in this area.
My BF loves to surf but this will not be the focus of our trip. We are looking to have a few beach days and some other days exploring, perhaps wine tasting etc. Just generally fitting a bit in during the week.
We have not got a set budget but are not looking to stay in pure luxury! We are happy with somewhere where we can sleep and if we can, it would be nice if we can have an outside area (not fussed about a pool) where we can BBQ or eat/drink nice wine outside.
If there is anywhere cheap or anyone can recommend a night to stop off for a nice restaurnt etc on the way from Cherbourg-La Rochelle area then bonus as we can break the drive up but if not we will be happy to drive through,
Any other recommendations will be appreciated or different ideas that could involve my boyfriend getting a little bit of surf time in!
